SNAP recipients in Connecticut will receive their February benefits on their EBT card between January 17-20, 2019. There will be NO additional benefits issued in February if you received your benefits early – even if the federal government is no longer shutdown.
When you receive your benefits during the January 17-20th time period, they will have to last through the month of February so plan your budget as well as possible. Please follow this link for additional details: www.ct.gov/snap.

What is SNAP?
SNAP is the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which offers nutrition assistance to eligible individuals and families and provides economic benefits to communities. SNAP helps individuals and families purchase food at participating supermarkets, groceries, and farmers markets. This federally funded program was created to help income-eligible recipients eat well and stay healthy. The program is administered by the United States Department of Agriculture and the CT State Department of Social Services.
SNAP benefits are provided by a Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) card—a plastic swipe card that looks and is used like a credit or debit card and is accepted at most grocery stores. SNAP benefits are deposited monthly to your EBT card.
